Well I'm not from Smog Town, so I can't be proud about that (did live there for a while though).

But this is probably the best I've felt about being a Boro supporter since our decade-plus stay in the Prem.

 

Really?

 

Better than the playoff season under Karanka? Or the promotion season?

Its mad how everything seems rosier when your club is riding a good wave.  I've just said hello to the wife for the first time in months 

Well played fellas. Draw a fair result.  No complaints. See you at our place. Any one need any advice give me a shout. 

Today was class but I'm proud to be from Boro regardless, I love the place and honestly it makes me happy to turn up to the Riverside every match day. I work down the road from the stadium and the Tra

Just wanted to say how sorry I am that your brilliant run is over Boro_Unger at least you did not bow out to a defeat.

Foogle you have a tough act to follow buddy!

I know we only drew, but isn't there a case for keeping BU doing league matchday threads, given how unlikely it was we'd win against Spurs?

I know Woody is suddenly a tactical genius, but we all know its really been his matchday threads that have turned our season around. 😁

To be honest I've seen Boro yo-yo between the top and 2nd tier so many times that the shine has worn off a bit.

Play-offs? Meh.

Getting promoted under Karanka was great, but the excitement wore off pretty quickly when it became obvious we were on a hiding to nothing and going straight back down.

So instead you are more excited about 16th in the Championship and a draw against a decent Premier League side? I'm genuinely baffled.

Believe me I did wrestle with this but others are waiting their turn, however I just might recall BU early if the situation arises:classic_cool:

Wonder what kind of money we will e making from these two games, instead of going out against Newport. A game at Spurs new big stadium must be worth something. Maybe enough to cover a certain loan deal for a certain nephew.

FA cup is like basically 50/50 split on gate receipts (I think it's actually something like 45/45 with FA taking final 10%), and I imagine it will get televised as well. They're averaging about 58-59k at home this season, so it should be a fair old chunk of change.

Quick math; 50k tickets sold at roughly 25 pounds equals 1.250.000 so roughly 500k for each club plus the TV money. I have no idea what they are selling tickets at for the game, but it can't be expensive. A weeknight third round fixture against a lower league team. Not bad.

Don’t think it is on live tv, so no fees there ( £72k, if it is). Replays is 42.5% of gate each. apart from FA 10%,  the other 5% goes to be split between any non league club that got through to first round proper, apparently.

Interesting, didn't know about that 5% I knew non league clubs really want to make the 1st round proper but I always thought it was for prestige, but it makes even more sense if they also get a trickle down of gate receipts!

Worth noting is that unlike other 'north' London clubs we announce attendance as bums on seats not tickets sold.

Saville has really impressed the last couple of games, is it any coincidence that he's looked much better playing in a holding midfield 2 - as he did at Millwall - compared to when he's playing in a formation with 3/4 other centre mids?

Saville could be a beast in a Karanka set up 😉

Total anti climax ...

And then Monk got 50 m £ which Karanka should have had 6 months earlier!
